Default seat removal

Hi all we have just brought a westbrook tahiti 2 bedrooms 4 birth and yes sorry its in ingoldmells now what i want to do is remove the seats i was going to put a fold up bed in the front room but that would cost 140 and would be in the way when i can get a 3 seater faux leather bed settee for 180 delivered and to me that makes more sense has anyone done this it has support pillars just before you go in the front room there is also over head cupboards so would it be just a case of maybe some support brackets in the two corners of the front room from wall to floor maybe a foot in length up wall and along floor this would give us the benefit of extra sleeping and also bringing the caravan into the 20th century any replys would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure the new sofa fits through the van door. Someone on our site ripped out fixed seating, bought new sofa. Couldnt get it through the door.

A has been mentioned make sure it will fit, if not via the doors then it may have to be a front window removal. This will involve extra expense in getting it removed then refitted.

There are sofas and chairs that can fit through the doors. Just beware of standard household items.

Hi, look through this (rather long) thread

If you use the search button ("search this thread"), type in the words 'fixed seating', then, every post withing that thread that mentions those words will be highlighted in red for you, that will save you a lot of time!!

Hope this helps.

parkandleisure will guide you, there are steps you need to take if you are removing seating as it is a structural change in stability. You should also inform your insurance company you intend to do this, as it may affect your policy.

I'd grab a coffee if I were you.... you could be gone some time

As others had said make sure you can fit it in via the door. Also the other advise I would give is speak to someone who knows about the construction of your holiday home making sure that the fixed seating is not part of the solid construction of the build of the unit.
